Description of ESFJs

ESFJ's are considered the "Supporters" or the "Providers" of the 16 types.

They are very sociable and nuturing and helping people comes naturally to them.

They tend to be well organized.

ESFJ's have a special skill at bringing out the best in others. They are extremely good at reading others, and understanding their point of view.

In groups they will work towards building harmony amongst the team members.

They visibly support and respect rules, regulations, traditions and authority.

You will see them in supportive roles in civic organizations, government, and social organizations.

ESFJ's are outgoing and people oriented. They are warm, sympathetic and easy to get to know.

ESFJs prefer careers where:
  • Management provides specific and realistic directions
  • The work offers plenty of opportunities to make decisions
